    • 1 year, 100 joys1 year, 100 joys1 year, 100 joys We have one year to work with our friends in Europe. It seems a short time, but we did many things. With Lion, our monster-pet, children learned how to make and read QR codes on the iPad. Celebrate Carnival. The whole school dressed as monsters. Jaco, the monster Portuguese, was at the party and put on a mask of Lion. Children cared much to Jaco: visited a museum of painting, learned to brush my teeth, went to the Municipal Library, par- ticipate in birthday parties, recycle school paper … Violeta Monreal writer came to the school to talk about monsters and books. Now the school library has more fun books about monsters: 36 books. 10 monsters invented attractive to the Vir- tual Museum. We work with English School and Portuguese School: write tales of monsters with collaborati- ve techniques. VMM prepare project merchandising: pencils and bookmarks. Also recorded on the iPad the words that will be heard in the Multilingual Dic- tionary on line. The kids really enjoy the blog VMM: like to know latest news and express their opinion. In one year the project "Virtual Museum of Monsters" gave us a lot of joy. Friends Swedish, En- glish, Portuguese, Ita- lians, Czechs: THANK YOU!

We like Lion, Jaco, Prutt... We like all monsters. It's fun to take pictures with monsters. I also had fun at the carnival, when the whole school dressed as mons- ters. We like to have friends in other schools of Europe, because friends are very Italian, other friends are ve- ry Swedish, others are very Portuguese... All our friends are very handsome and very cool. Our friends in Europe made a very handsome mons- ter dolls. We go to see our friends at their schools. As we go live far away by plane and by boat".

It was from England. The excitment was high when we opend it. That was the first time we met with Lucy and Starry. Together we have had a wounderful time that unfortunately soon will end. Its lucky another monster will arrive! Lucy and Starry have been a big part of our days here at Bifrost. They have given us questions and tasks. We have learnd a lot together! This week Starry came with us to the forrest and asked us about different shapes and what they are called. The children started to look after things in the forrest with different shapes. After this day we have read books about shaped, we have drawn different shapes, we have looked at different shapes, made monsters out of shaped and with the iPad we have made patterns of shapes that we later have made out of pearls.

While the weather was typical En- glish weather, everyone was able to see some of the sights of Leicestershire. We also took a trip at the weekend to Stratford upon Avon which is where Shakespeare was born. Juvenal came along too. This is Juvenal outside Shakespears’s birth- place. Lion has enjoyed his time in school. Whilst visiting us he was able to come on a rip to Beaumanor Hall with the year 2 pupils. We even made him a pirate hat so he could join in. The children in class 2 have all been making monsters at home so Lion felt very welcome while in the classroom as he was surrounded by lots of friends. Lion went home with some of the children from class 1 and 2 and even went on holiday with Jamie S from class 2. We have now waved goodbye to Lion and Juvenal as they set off to visit Sweden and the Czech Republic. 444
    • PROYECT NEWSLETTER “VIRTUAL MUSEUM OF MONSTERS” COMENIUS MULTILATERAL SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS 555 From Italy arrived a big green monster that likes to eat spiders and insects and doesn’t like to bathe. He told us a sad story. He lost his parents in Italy and decided to look for them. The first country was Portugal. He was happy when he realized that they also went looking for him and that they were also in Portugal. We built a monster named Juvenal very environmentally friendly and the arrival to our school of two monsters coming from Italy: Gicca and Org. They come for help to the students of the EB1 Corredoura that would support them in the pursuit of their son Prutt, which got lost in a garden. The enthusiasm in helping those new friends was immediate. The month of February was extraordinary for two main reasons: we built a monster named Juvenal very environmentally friendly and the arrival to our school of two monsters coming from Italy: Gicca and Org. They come for help to the students of the EB1 Corredoura that would support them in the pursuit of their son Prutt, which got lost in a garden. The enthusiasm in helping those new friends was immediate. We were studying aspects of our coastline and we took them to Nazareth, where he met a sea monster to whom they asked for help. This monster was going to the Azores. Thus, our friends got to know theexistence of the archipelago as part of our country. Already in the classroom helped to build a model of that archipelago . The days passed and Prutt was still missing. Bibliomóvel be came if ther sun was there so they ask the asked the librarian if she had seen their son or if he was hiding on the shelves. The librarian teld was sorry to them that she had not seen him. Meanwhile, our friends went to the mountains surrounding the school, but nothing ... then decided to help colleagues to cultivate our vegetable garden. After this activity others followed: the construction of m2 participation in cultural journeys, the recreational reading in the reading corner, a trip to the Municipal Library, among others. During his staying in this kindergarten, together with kids, he learned hygiene concepts and attitudes, learned how to plant vegetables, heard lots of stories, met Camila (the character of school libraries project of this school), learned and taught mathematics and used ICT to communicate with his Italian friends. In summary, a journey full of adventures.

Our pupils worked with the book and the film during English lessons. Children really enjoyed both the book and the film, which introduced them to English literature. The story tells about a mouse, who wanders around a forest and is looking for nut. He meets a fox, owl and a snake, all of whom try eat him. To survive, the brave mouse needs to use his wits. He claims he is about to meet a terrible monster called Gruffalo and this way he chases his enemies away. The mouse becomes more and more confident. Nothing bad can happen to him in the forest. Until he turns round the corner and finds himself face with a figments of his imagination, the Gruffalo well and the mouse can finally enjoy the found nut. At the end our pupils draw the Gruffalo.
    • LIFE MOSTERLIFE MOSTERLIFE MOSTER PROYECT NEWSLETTER “VIRTUAL MUSEUM OF MONSTERS” COMENIUS MULTILATERAL SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS Children of the Primary School “Gianni Rodari” are waiting for…. Matylda! So there! After the lunch time we found a big case with inside…. Matylda: a beautiful little monster! Finally we can welcome her among us! Children pampered her, and later put her to sleep because Elisa said: “Teacher, she surly is very tired because of the long travel, she needs to sleep.” (Matylda has slept for one hour). When she woke up, Arianna said: “Teacher, maybe she feels alone because she leaves in Trutnov all her monster friends. Let’s bring her to our monsters, so she doesn’t feel alone.” (Matylda met a lots of different monsters, she socialized with them, she played with them, she also wanted be in love with TANTEDITA, but finally she refused him because he is a latin lover, in fact we saw him send kiss to another monster, Bruchettola!) On 14th March was Matylda’s name day: we made a big party with her new monster friends. She blew on the candles and she ate cake (she likes very much the chocolate cake!) On Wednesday at school for lunch there is lasagna: so we bring with us Matylda to taste it and she likes it very much! Matylda likes our picture cards that she can find in the books of our library, so every day, before going home, we give her a book: she enjoys herself and she doesn’t fell alone during the night. Now she has to leave and we are very sad and Daniele said: “Teacher, I think that Elisa, Arianna and all girls in the class will cry a lot!” Looking for Molli Children of kindergarten F.ll Cervi tell us: We are waiting for a long time the coming of Molli. Every day we asked to our teachers: “Is Molli coming?” and teachers said: “NO”. But one day Tiziana arrived at school with a big case and we happily opened it. “That happiness, it’s Molli”. A little colored and tender monster, we were afraid to break her. Molli lived in the monsters’ yellow house, with other Italian monsters. She enjoyed a lot and she learned some Italian words: mostro (monster), paura (fear), amico (friend), bello (beaty), ciao (hello), come stai? (how are you?), molto bene! (very good!). When she arrived in our school it was snowing and she went in the garden to play with children. Later spring is coming and she went outside with children to pick up flowers and walk in the streets. Molli went with us to the theatre and saw an acting named “il cubo magico” (the magic cube), and later she visited the toys museum: there were toys that our parents used when they were children. Now we have to say hello to her, we are very sad, but we love her. SCUOLA F.LLI CERVISCUOLA F.LLI CERVISCUOLA F.LLI CERVI --- SCUOLA G. RODARI (ITALY)SCUOLA G. RODARI (ITALY)SCUOLA G.
